KANSAS CITY, Mo. - FBI investigators are hoping a plastic Quik Trip cup in the background of a child pornography photo may help lead to an arrest in the case.
The Kansas City FBI office released information and photos of a man who may have further information about the pictures, though he is not indicated as a suspect.
Investigators have traced the child porn to 2005 and have cross-referenced the date to a listing of Quik Trip stores open at the time the photograph was taken.
"In those photographs, there is a man sitting on a bed nearby where the child is being sexually exploited," explained Bridget Patton, FBI spokesperson. "We are now at a point where we can take the different photographs that have appeared in this series, put them together and have enough information to put out to the public."
The man is described as an older white male between 55 and 65 years old with brown eyes, gray hair and a full beard with mustache.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the FBI's toll-free Tip Line at 800-225-5324.
